      He was instrumental in the saving of my leg. His expertise and kindness made a very scary time much, much better.

      Had foot surgery three years ago by Dr. Krumins. Pleasant Dr. but question his surgical skills because the treatment totally failed. I'm in the process of researching the best foot surgeon I can find in the Seattle/Tacoma area who can rectify my condition.
      Tacoma, WA |
      Didn't feel like Dr. Krumins was really paying attention to me when I was in the exam room and felt like I was rushed each time I was there. This was my second surgery but my first with Dr. Krumins. I can definitely tell the difference between the two. I still have pain and problems with my foot since the surgery and it's been over a year. I have had no problems with my other foot that was done by a different orthopedic surgeon three years ago.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
